8 Reasons to Love Linen Bedding


Made from flax fibre, linen is one of the world’s oldest fabrics. Previous generations have always appreciated linen's unique qualities. The benefits of linen include its filtering, bacteria-resistant, ventilating, moisture-absorbing and evaporating capabilities. Linen bed sheets are anti-allergic and recommended for people with skin diseases, children and others prone to sensitivities from synthetic materials. So here we go with a few more perks:

  • Linen has high air permeability and heat conductivity properties. It's a breathable fabric, keeping you warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
  • Linen has a light massaging effect because of the microscopic breaks throughout the fabric.
  • Linen can absorb as much as 20 per cent of its weight in moisture before feeling wet – that's why it always has a pleasant, fresh, cool feeling when touched or slept on.
  • Linen sheets have a distinct, distinguished texture and delightful softness to them – in fact they become even softer and shinier with each wash.
  • Linen is anti-static and can even help soften and preserve the skin due to its natural pH balance.


Linen is environmentally friendly. The flax plant, used to make linen, is used in other ways: the seeds, for example, are pressed to make linseed oil, which is used in floor coverings, such as linoleum, and paint. Linen is a renewable resource that needs no irrigation. Linen is also fully biodegradable. Linen bedding is twice as durable as cotton bedding and can last the decades. Definitely a worthwhile investment!
